Emmanuel Kelly singing on Australia X Factor is snot-en-trane material [video]
Posted by on Sep 6th, 2011

It’s no secret that i’m rather skeptical about these reality talent shows across the world and i’ve previously bitched and moaned about them playing the sympathy card just a tad too often when it comes to singers. So when i heard about a performer on Australian X factor with limb deficiencies due to chemical warfare and who was adopted after being abandoned at an orphanage in Iraq i had my doubts…then i watched this video.

Heads up..grab some tissues.

I was doing just fine before watching that video. Way to go make a grown ass man cry there buddy.

“Kelly and his brother Ahmed were adopted from Iraq, both suffering limb deficiencies as a result of chemical warfare. They were abandoned at an orphanage and rescued by Children First Foundation boss Moira Kelly.”When I got up and started singing there was nothing else, adrenalin just took over, it was just a blur,” Kelly said. “I just want to sing and I want to make people happy.” [DailyTelegraph]

Great stuff…count me as one of the folks that you made happy.
